Amos Lee with special guest Mutlu
$59, $49, $39
With his laid-back vocal delivery and acoustic songwriting, Amos Lee draws inspiration from soul music, ‘70s folk, blues, and contemporary jazz. With the release of his self-titled debut album in 2004, the Philadelphia-born former schoolteacher immediately earned the attention of discerning music fans and fellow artists alike for his adult alternative, indie/rock style, seamlessly blending acoustic funk, folk, R&B, and light jazz. In 2011, his album Mission Bell debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and four of his songs have earned top ten status, namely “Shout Out Loud,” “What’s Been Going On,” “Windows are Rolled Down,” and “Worry No More.”
Joining Amos, to begin the evening, will be soul singer/songwriter, Mutlu. A Philadelphia musician who proudly carries a torch for the city’s soul legacy, Mutlu makes a connection with every audience. Coming up in the Philly scene, he played around town and in area clubs before landing his first tour, opening for Joe Jackson. Since then he’s toured across the U.S. and Europe with his musical brother, Amos Lee, who discovered Mutlu’s music just as both of their careers were taking off. In addition, he’s found an advocate with Daryl Hall & John Oates, who invited Mutlu to support a national theater tour.
